Ali McGregor hosts a half-hour show featuring the best cabaret acts appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010.
The acts include:
Oompah Brass - a "rock 'n' roll oompah band" who perform covers of pop classics.
Celebrated musical comedy duo Frisky and Mannish, who have been described as "the spirit of inventive, spangly silliness".
Fitzrovia Radio Hour, a group of actors who bring alive the spirit of Fifties radio drama.
Anil Desai is a comedian who performs a vast array of impressions in a bewilderingly short space of time.
Australian comedian and oddball, Asher Treleavan, who performs a very alternative version of a literary classic.
And host Ali McGregor demonstrates her amazing vocal talent and highly alternative cover versions.
